    Cable news anchors from CNN and MSNBC, joined by Fox News’s Chris Wallace, were gushing over Biden’s speech, some nearly in tears, a far cry from any Trump speech reaction over the past four years. CNN commissioned a poll to support their lovefest over Biden’s spendfest speech.

    Their headline on the day after Biden’s speech was “7 in 10 who watched say Biden’s speech left them feeling optimistic.”

    Start with the bit about “who watched.” How many Americans gave up an hour of their evening to watch what the media thought was a speech on par with Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I have a dream” speech? Not too many.

    Charlie Kirk tweeted out TV ratings for presidential addresses.

    Trump 17—48,000,000

    Trump 18—46,000,000

    Trump 19—46,800,000

    Trump 20—37,200,000

    Biden 21—11,600,000​
    The last figure was the sum total of the three main legacy television networks - CBS, ABC, and NBC, plus Fox News. Nielsen reports the audience from more sources at 26.9 million. Either way, Biden drew considerably less of the audience that Trump did in his first congressional address and far less than in Trump’s final address, even when cable media are included. As the Last Refuge noted,

    That’s over a 60% decrease in viewership. No crowds ever attended his rallies. There was no crowd at his installation. There are no views for his on-line speeches. The audience for his regular speeches are non-existent. Virtually no viewers at home. An empty chamber for his speech,… and yet we are to believe he received 81 million votes.​

    The Dem MSM are perverse priests of a Progressive Left cult bent on undermining American society. They are without excuse. With their subversively orchestrated propaganda, they go far beyond being Fake News. They really are a Conspiracy News Network.

    The accuracy of any poll is entirely dependent on how the pollsters frame their questions to a prospective "stander-by." The fake news outlets are experts at spinning a question so as to always come up with their own predetermined viewpoint(s). EX: How did you judge that good-for-nothing so-and-so that claims she/he lost what WE ALL KNOW was NOT a rigged contest? Trouble seems to be that so many people watch/listen to these same outlets to form their opinions. Why are we not surprized to learn that so-and-so lost by a landslide if so-and-so candidate didn't follow these wacko "news"(?) outlets drivel?

    If as many formed their opinions accordingly, they would not need so many fake polls. No doubt millions are influenced by such subterfuge, but not enough for a landslide.

    This is why they must also resort to shutting down as many avenues of fact and counter opinion as possible, and strongly oppose all attempts to conduct bona fide elections and verify results.

    Yep. And no source is infallible nor to be so trusted save God.

    The Dem MSM of all things has managed to sell millions the ridiculous notion that they should be so trusted, that they can be trusted to "fact check" themselves and everyone else.

    When someone says, "Trust me," be extra suspicious. As Reagan was fond of quoting, "Trust, but verify."
